I have had a few DSM's in the past and I have tried to give them up but like most of you know that's not really possible. I picked this 1990 AWD GA shell up from my buddy for $250 after he said he was going to scrap it. its not a clean body but I'm okay with it. The plans for this build is kinda like scrappy street fighter simply function over form.
received a rattle can paint job and that's all this old lady is getting.

after daily Driving the car for two months regaining some faith in dsm's athough I have had a lot of issues causing me to drop the trans 2 times.

leaking main seal
improper throw out bearing caused clutch failure
faulty injector resistor pack
leaking Bov had to crush it
power steering rack kept leaking ended up pulling it don't mind it at all gives the car more stability at higher speeds eventually ill depower it
stripped oil feed leaking oil JB welded a block off bolt in and feeding from OFH now

nothing I am not used to this trouble weeds out the non loyal. Picked up a Gm Maft pro thinking it would be better than the old knob style safcs
it worked slighty better but never could get it perfect was running 20 psi on my 14b with 850cc fics pulled pretty good but was always pig rich and idle wasent to great.

The dark one. It's almost all stock with a MAFT and GM 3"maf with a header and a 16g? from Ebay probably.

Continue with the updates, didn't mean to side track.

I like the sleeper look it's got going on...Other than the FMIC staring at you:D.
Keep up the build looks good. I didn't see I'm assuming the block is built too...
